Hanging out in ManzanilloDonna
02/25/2011, Santiago Bay on 2/24
2/22 We awaken in Maruata to some cool air and haze. We have the anchor up, a cup of coffee in each of our hands, and sailing by 7:40 AM. It's a quiet day of puttering along at 4-5 knots, and arrive in Cabeeza Negra at 5:15 Pm. As we arrive, a couple of whales and a group of dolphins put on a "welcoming" show for us. We are again, the only boat in the anchorage. In the morning, we wonder if it is because the anchorage was rockin' and rollin' all night long, at (we swear!) a 45 degree angle - both directions! Did we sleep? You figure it out!

Ok, last piucture from the cooking class, but this shows the finished product - basically a Pablamo pepper, burned and peeled,stuffed with 3 different cheeses, then dipped into a batter of whipped eggs and fried quickly. The sauce that accompanied it was delicious!

Leaving ZihuwatenejoD & D
02/17/2011, Arrive in Petatlan
2/13 Well, it's the day before Valentine's Day and we decide to "treat ourselves" to a special dinner a day early. We finish a few chores, then "dinghy in" and take a good long walk; I buy s beautiful hand painted bowl from a lady I've watched painting them in the last few days. . . I'm happy with my purchase. Around 6, we find a lovely restaurant, perched on the edge of the cliffs surrounding Zihuatenejo and like their menu. We are seated at "the best seat in the restaurant", overlooking the bay, and practically hanging over the cliff! We watch a spectacular sunset and have a delicious meal - fillet Red Snapper and many grilled vegetables, cooked to perfection. The flan makes a nice finale! It's a memorable night.
